Just wanted to update. I used a shampoo bar again today, and it's going really well! There's far less of that icky feeling, and its starting to get replaced by a really soft feeling. The curl enhancement and volume is really fantastic too, so far this experiment is going great! I did use a different conditioner, but no ACV.
